This Mother’s Day, I want to give you the perfect gift to show you how I feel about you.
But as I thought about what I might give to the woman who sacrificed so much for me… I wondered…
What on earth I could possibly give you that could ever say ENOUGH?
How can I thank you for everything you have done for me?
Mom, thank you for all the times...
…you sat up all night with me when I was sick.
…you helped me with my “last minute” science projects.
…you held me when I cried.
…you did without things you wanted, so I could have things I wanted.
…you were there for me.
Mom, this Kindhearted Mug is my “Thank You” for all the kindness you have shown me.
The fingers that molded the shape of this mug belong to mothers like you, who love their children.
These moms want to be the kind of mom you have been to me.
They want to be able to “be there” for their children the way you have “been there” for me.
Underneath the pretty pink glaze are the fingerprints of mothers in Vietnam who are grateful for the chance to be able to raise and care for their own children.
Every mug is filled with their gratitude and thanks for the ability to feed and care for their families.
And Mom… every cup of comfort this Kindhearted Mug pours out for you is my “Thank You” for everything you have done for me because of your kind heart.
How can I repay you for all the time and energy you invested in ME?
Mom, thank you for all the time and energy you invested in me when…
…you somehow made sure I was on time for every piano recital and soccer game.
…you perfectly planned and executed countless birthday parties and sleepovers.
…you chased me through the pet store and made me put all the animals back.
…you patiently listened to my drama… drama… drama…
…you waited up until past my curfew to make sure I made it home safe.
Mom, this Mayan Blend Coffee can’t give you back all of the time and energy you spent over the years making sure I was on time, happy, and safe… but please take a few minutes today to enjoy a steaming hot cup of my gratitude while you celebrate yourself for being so amazing!
This coffee was roasted by women in the mountains of Guatemala whose feet have walked many of the same paths of motherhood that your feet have walked.
They are working women who get up every workday to make sure their children have enough food to eat and clothes to wear.
They have poured out their time and energy into making sure their kids are on time, happy, and safe, too.
They are paid fair wages for their work to show them how valuable they are as women.
Mom, there is no way I could ever pay you “fair wages” for the time and energy you have invested in my life.
But please take some time today to put up your feet and refresh your energy with this Mayan Blend Coffee in your Kindhearted Mug.
And Mom… even after Mother’s Day is over… I hope you will take time every day to put up your feet, relax, and drink in my gratitude for all the time and energy you have invested in me.
How can I remind you of everything you are to me?
Mom, thank you for being…
…my hero when there are monsters under my bed.
…my bottomless pantry for every lemonade stand.
…my celebrity chef at every bake sale.
…my taxi driver.
…my shoulder to cry on.
…my fashion critic.
…my best friend.
Mom… inside this Momento Frame is a photo to remind you of who you are to me. You are all these things and more.
This frame was handcrafted by artisans in India who are escaping poverty. They engrave beautiful and creative impressions into these wooden frames to provide their children with hope for a brighter future… like the hope you have given me.
This frame reminds me of the way you have impressed upon my heart the value of being kind, selfless, and thoughtful.
The Perfect Mother’s Day Gift
So, Mom… please enjoy this Mother’s Day gift!
Today when you put up your feet… relax… and sip your Mayan Blend Coffee in your Kindhearted Mug… I hope the photo in this Momento Frame reminds you that you are appreciated, valued, and loved… every day.
